“If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.” - John Hemingway.
These words are so true!
It's nearly a month that I've returned back from Kenya, but I'm not yet over the post-trip blues! Africa is like that magical land where mysteries unfold - and I believe that for all travelers, it's surely one of those dreamlands to be explored at least for once in a lifetime!
Well, to be honest, when we think of Kenya, probably the first thing that pops up on our mind is the picture of the elephants, giraffes, zebras, and lions! No wonder, that's the most popular image we've grown up seeing and it has made a mark on us. But when I traveled to this gorgeous East African nation, I was mesmerized by its beauty and taken aback to see that there's so much in Kenya that just the wildlife!
Unlike others, who usually have game drives on the top of their Kenya bucket list, I visited the country for a completely different reason. Fortunately enough, I got the opportunity to volunteer for a childcare project in the outskirts of Nairobi, at a place called Kikuyu and got to spend a month exploring the country, apart from serving the tiny tots at the Makimei Children's Home.
A major part of my weekdays was occupied with the service work that I was doing, although I did have the evenings and weekends for myself to explore. I'm not sure how many of you out there (reading this blog) would be keen on associating with something as wonderful as volunteering, but I would surely suggest you to visit Kenya, at least for once in a lifetime.
